Airbourne

Airbourne

“I’m gonna hit the highway and never look back” is the line that launches Airbourne’s latest single “Breakin’ Outta Hell.”

The lyric video accompanying the song—created by Richard Oakes from Dark Fable Media—may have implications for those with easy access to open roads. Watch the clip from start to finish and you might just get the urge to open the throttle.

“We get a lot of feedback from our fans saying how much they love the faster tracks,” said Airbourne frontman Joel O’Keeffe. “But when they play them in the car … well, it can be tough on their pocket with all the speeding fines! ‘Breakin’ Outta Hell’ is definitely one of THOSE numbers … Even the guys who filmed the lyric video were stopped by the police and given a fine.

“For us, these visuals really sum up the feeling behind the song and the album, too. The whole message is right there. Put on the single, or the album, and it’s, ‘Fuck the boss and fuck all the tax I owe. I’m going out, I’m getting pissed and I’m going to listen to some hard rock ‘n’ roll.’ No ballads, no bullshit. I’m breaking out of hell!” (more…)
